The Wider Image: In Georgian valley, war-scarred women battle tradition
Mariam Kebadze, 16, uses her phone as she sits outside Leila's Guesthouse, owned by her mother, in Jokolo village of Pankisi, Georgia, July 4, 2019. Mariam used to live with her father in Telavi and moved to Pankisi where she now lives and studies to support her mother Leila Achishvili who is running the guesthouse. "It's really boring sometimes here, there's not much to do in the village because it's the same routine all the time - school, classes, jogging by the river sometimes. Girls don't go outside at night because they are embarrassed and sometimes I really miss going for a walk in the evening, I like nights," she said. "One of my dreams is to live somewhere in the mountains, maybe in Switzerland. I read about a music festival in a forest there with beautiful lights at night, and people just dancing and laughing, they are so free and cheerful."
